I’m thrilled to announce that we’re fast approaching phase 1 of our Wish-Fulfilling Jewel Appeal. Our total raised as of 31st May is £8,361. This figure is made up of standing orders, one off donations and many of them have been Gift Aided, which allows us to claim back 25%. However, we’re not taking our foot off the pedal as we have a lot more to raise. We’re looking for more standing order donations as they allow us to plan ahead with the work, but are very grateful for our one off donations ranging from £10 up to £1000. We will be having a number of fundraising events coming up through the year where people can get involved, spend time with friends in the sangha and also raise money for our project. Here’s some of the ways we’ve been raising money and some ideas coming up
* Hidden Gems 2nd hand clothes rail * Singing Workshops * Film Nights * Selling donated books and DVD’s on Amazon * Selling donated books and DVD’s at the centre * Open day * Sponsored swimathon
There’s many more ideas coming through so keep up to date via our website or pop into our centre.
